Summary

UA Local 170 members typically work in environments that have hazardous levels of noise (more than 85 dB averaged over an eight-hour shift), so it is important to have your hearing tested every year. UAPICBC provides Hearing Tests, by appointment, onsite at Delta Main Campus for members who need one as a condition for dispatch.

After your hearing test, the technician will discuss the results with you and suggest any necessary follow-up. The technician can also recommend the best hearing protection for you to use.
